I wasn't defending Islam. I think all the goat-herder religions are equally ignorant. I was making a point about the bazillionth "look at them
dirty muslims and their barbarian ways" threads.
Perhaps the Christians (which I never said you were) need to spend more time being christ-like, and less time judging others for not liking Christ.
The point of these types of threads is so some judgey-mcjudgerson can hold up a pic, video, or line from the Koran and can point and scoff with their
other intolerant buddies about how ignorant and barbaric the other culture is. It's the forum equivalent of 3rd grade. Then it devolves into god
knows how many posts debating the meaning of the Qu'ran and how your god said you can do this while my god says you can do that. Even though, you
know it's referring to the same entity.
But the real purpose is pointing at an entire segment of society and dehumanizing them based upon the actions of a few. It would be like Arabs
pointing at the Westboro Baptist Church and saying "look at these monsters, look how they treat their dead and their minorities".
